Mineola is the most exclusive Mississauga neighbourhood. This forested enclave features large beautiful houses on premium lots. The streets are winding and lined with towering pine and oak trees. Nature is all around with conservation areas and Lake Ontario to the south. Mineola is part one of the last vestiges of Carolinian Forest in Ontario. This accounts for all the beautiful trees that this neighbourhood is known for including species of ash, birch, chestnut, hickory, oak, walnut and tulip trees.
This is a very convenient neighbourhood for commuters. The borders for this neighbourhood are the Queen Elizabeth highway to the north, Lakeshore Road to the south, Cawthra Road to the east and the Credit River to the west. The Lakeview neighbourhood is located just to the east and Port Credit just to the west. Mississauga City Centre is located a short drive north while motorists can access the City of Toronto in less than 10 minutes.
Mineola is a quiet family oriented community. It is also among the most exclusive and priciest enclaves in Mississauga. This is a tight knit community and the people are friendly. Mineola residents have been known to champion causes that will impact the neighbourhood positively or challenge developments that do not fit the neighbourhood character. If you want to get out shopping or are looking to dine out the closest destination is Port Credit Village just to the southwest. Mississauga City Centre is just a short 5 minute drive north on Hurontario Street. There are also a handful of small plazas nearby on Hurontario Street.
Mineola has everything from townhomes to mid-century bungalows and colonial revivals to custom designed estate homes. There is lots of variety but the one constant for all the detached homes is large lots which accounts for the higher valuations. The streetscape follows the natural contours of the land and is lined with a colour guard of mature trees which all add to the charm and beauty of the homes.
Carmen Corbasson Community Centre’s facilities are made up of a number of buildings located near the main intersection at Cawthra Rd and Q.E.W. Some of the Community Centre’s amenities include a climate controlled indoor walking track, a full size gymnasium, an active living studio, two indoor ice surfaces, and a 25 meter lane pool (located in the back of Cawthra Secondary School). Adjacent to the community centre is the Cawthra Woods Interpretive hiking trail which is a great place to learn about nature including the flora and fauna of the area, wetlands, bird species and animal habitat.
Visual Arts Mississauga located at 4170 Riverwood Park Lane offers a myriad of arts classes and programs for children and adults.
